Expert: Tuvalu doesn't care of Georgia's nonrecognition
Well-known Georgian expert Nino Virsaladze believes that Georgia can not give an adequate response to the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia from Tuvalu.
According to "Current Comments", Virsaladze doubt that the words of Deputy Foreign Minister of Georgia David Jalagania that official Tbilisi will take the necessary measures in response to recognition of the sovereignty of Sukhumi and Tskhinvali from Tuvalu, can be taken seriously. "Initially, it was clear that the former Georgian territory will anyway recognize some states after Russia (even small or tiny.), and leading countries won't mind. In this sense, it is unclear just what an adequate response, as the Deputy Minister of Foreign Minister David Jalagania said, can Georgia give?" - said Virsaladze.
"Independence of Tuvalu was proclaimed in 1978. Georgia can withdraw its recognition, claiming that she was part of the USSR. But Tuvalu doesn't care of this. However, just like other island countries, tired of the traditional Georgian rhetoric on this issue" - she added.
Earlier, Abkhaz Foreign Ministry announced the recognition of the sovereignty of island nation of Tuvalu by Sukhum.
Relevant documents on the recognition of Abkhazia's independence was signed in Sukhum, in the capital of the Republic by the heads of government of two states - Sergey Shamba and Willy Telavi.
Similar documents were signed between representatives of Tuvalu and Tskhinval.
